LG’s improving sales turn around three quarters of losses

LG’s improving sales turn around three quarters of losses

LG‘s just released their financial results for Q2 (Apr-Jun) 2014, and if you’re a fan of the company then things are looking pretty good.

A decent chunk of this – and the part we care most about – is coming from the modestly-named LG Mobile Communications Company division, which shipped 14.5 million smartphones in Q2 (a 16% increase in sales), ending three consecutive quarters of losses. People want LG phones, and we can’t fault them for that. Much of this success is attributed to initial enthusiasm[Read More...]
